Just get the task of booking done and go and relax- your in the City Centre near enough so park your car safe nearby at the station and this hotel is about as fair as it gets when it comes to price- sure if you have to much money then try the STRAND HOTEL ACROSS the way.

The hotel is in the center village, but it's quiet and pleasant to be there. Fantastic Irish Breakfast, many more opcions in a nice buffet! The rooms have a fantastic view, avery large and very well decorated, as the rest of the compound!

I decided to spend a weekend in Shannon and Limerick to explore the beautiful western Irish countryside. I wanted a room close to the city center of Limerick as well as to the churches, monuments and train station. I selected the Railway Hotel due to its proximity to the central station. I was met at the door by a warm...

I was upgraded from shared bathroom to an ensuite single room when I checked in. The room was mid-size for an individual and the bathroom was clean with good hot water. I peered at the shared bathroom and it looked a little dirty. The hotel is right across the street from the bus/train station. I didn't eat at the bar/restaurant...

My friend and I got stuck here for a night during a bus layover. Not only did it cost us €30 apiece to use the room for five hours, but the room was tiny and didn't even have electricity! It was ridiculous. You would be better off pitching a tent and camping on the sidewalk outside of this hell hole.

What do they say, "you get what you pay for..." Even the 30euros I paid for this dump was too much. This place makes some "no-tell motels" look like luxury. I had originally asked for a 2-night stay in this fleabag, but luckily they rang me up for only one. Now I see why this place ranks last of hotels...
